Question:

blown in insallation is in my drop ceiling and every time we close the door it falls into room?

we had a company install this for us 2 days ago they said it would settle but it still has some falling into rooms. dont know if we made a mistake by blowing it and not just rolling it. someone help please

Answer:

That is not acceptable. Call the company back and have them fix it. If they aren't willing, tell them you will make a claim against there bond. If you insisted on blown in and they wanted to use bats then it is your issue (not legally but rightly). They still should have made sure to only do things that would work. If your drop ceiling is a grid with acoustic tiles then bat insulation is what you should have used. Most companies will stand by their work. So I would talk with them first and ask them to fix it.

If this is a grid ceiling with tiles that just push up. Blown was not a good idea. Plus even though this blown insulation is rather light weight - over time it will cause your ceiling tiles to sag. What is happening is your room is so air tight that when you shut the door you are creating enough air pressure that one or more of the ceiling tiles is pushing up just enough to allow some of the insulation to fall out of the ceiling around this tile. Try shutting the door slowly or cracking a window just a bit to ease the air pressure when you close your door.
